Correctly UL'ing 24-Bit files to the LMA.......
Scott, I am just letting you know exactly how to properly UL 24bit files to the LMA. When you are filling out your metadata for your 24bit files, you must MANUALLY select '24-Bit FLAC' from the drop-down box/menu for EACH TRACK INDIVIDUALLY. It regularly/normally says 'FLAC'. You have to MANUALLY change it to '24-Bit FLAC' for EACH AND EVERY FLAC FILE ;) And once that is done for EVERY FLAC FILE, it will then ask at the VERY BOTTOM of the metadata page if you want it to make derivatives(mp3's/ogg's). Say 'NO' as the last option on that page. That way it WILL NOT try and make mp3's/ogg's from your 24bit files! And when its done correctly, it will say '24-Bit FLAC' above the track length in MB's on the mainpage for that particular recording :) Here is an example of how a 24-bit recording SHOULD LOOK ;) PLEASE dont take this post the wrong way Scott. I just see ALOT of tapers UL'ing their 24bit shows totally wrong, and then the system makes mp3's from them(chipmunks come to mind). I am simply looking out for you so that you know how to UL the 24bit files correctly in the future ;) And it will make EVERYONES lives easier when searching for 24bit files. Folks who dont know any better will DL the 24bit sources instead of the 16bit sources for CDR burning because they automatically see the mp3 files(64kbs/VBR/Ogg/etc) and dont know any better ;)
Anyway, here is an example of a correctly UL'd 24-Bit FLAC FILE recording to the LMA. And while you have this YMSB All Good 2007 recording up, DL it and you WILL NOT be disappointed ;) This particular YMSB show is DEF one of my best recordings from All Good 2007, and one of my best ever in the 10+ years Ive been recording, and is a FINE EXAMPLE of a SMOKIN 24bit recording, that is if you like YMSB :)
And while I'm at it and already rambling and taking up review space, here is a PDF for EXACT instructions for UL'ing to the LMA ;) Its STRAIGHT from the LMA awhile back when they switched the system up a few years ago and we now have alot more control on the UL process!!! I LOVE the new UL'ing process compared to the old system!
Thanks for your sources and the yummy 24bit stuff. I am WAY BEHIND on my 24bit stuff. I still have ALL of my All Good 2008 and moedown 2008 and about 15 other shows I have to process/flac/UL so I too can spread my 24bit stuff :) Just UL'ing all of my 16-bit stuff from around May 2008>>> moedown 2008 keeps me QUITE BUSY for sure! Thanks again and take care. I cant wait to hear your 170(Hypers)>722 recordings, especially since I am a hypercardioid/7xx FREAK :)
